BAS Rabbi's Message

Message from Rabbi Daniel Stein

January, 2012

Over the last several months, I have spent a lot of time at the gym.
Given my personal disdain of most physical activities, that fact is
particularly surprising. What has drawn me back? From the first
day, the manager at the gym knew my name. If I get a haircut or a
new pair of glasses, he is quick with a compliment. The other
clients at the gym quickly learn to follow his model, offering
encouragement and cheering each other on as we go through
pretty tough workouts. If I am absent for more than a few days, I
know I can expect a facebook message from one of my gym friends
making sure I am ok.

I noticed a similar trend recently when visiting retired relatives in South Florida. As we
walked through the dining room in their community, a seemingly endless stream of
friends and well-wishers came over to meet the mishpuche. I realized that although the
sun is a draw and Florida winters are more appealing than Toledo ones, the real appeal
was community. How wonderful it must feel to know that you are never more than a few
minutes away from a relaxing afternoon with people who legitimately care about you.

I often think about how we can make our community more engaging and welcoming,
and, while I think that creative programming can go a long way, the truth is that, for our
synagogue to flourish, it must be a place where all members feel welcomed and valued.
We need to work hard to make all who enter our doors feel like their presence is
essential—that we desire their participation in synagogue life and that our experience
as a community is incomplete without them. This is the project I try to engage in, with
varying degrees of success, every day. But it is not something I can do alone. Perhaps
this month, dedicate a few minutes to enhancing our community. Call a homebound
congregant, stop by for minyan or services, reach out to a new member, or reconnect
with an old friend. I promise it will make you feel good, and it will help to ensure the
continued strength and vitality of our community.

All the best, Rabbi Stein
